Suarez Best 11

Upton Park plays host to visitors from Merseyside.

Liverpool travel to Upton Park in search of some much needed points. Brendan Rodgers has steadied the ship after a poor start to the season but a run of just one defeat in ten is not as pleasing on the eye when you take into account that the Merseyside outfit drew five of those encounters.

West Ham will be buoyed by their excellent comeback win over Chelsea last weekend and with just one defeat at home this term Sam Allardyce’s side will be confident of another big performance from his side, who have taken to life back in the top tier with aplomb thus far this season.
